a house that will make your investment dreams come true with a 14.6% yield…

Hello Readers,

I hope you are well on this strange November day – so far today I have seen three seasons in one day – some sun and blue skies, grey dark and gloomy skies, torrents of rain and even a rainbow.  Strange!

However, I thought I would warm your spirits with a fantastic opportunity to purchase a HMO property.  Don’t know what a HMO is, no worries.  It is simply an abbreviation standing for a House of Multiple Occupancy.  Still no wiser, well it is a property whereby multiple sharers live in one property each with their own personal bedroom, but sharing a living room/communal break out space and a kitchen.  In some HMO properties you would also share bathrooms – there may be one or two bathrooms, but in others you would have your own ensuite.  Each tenant would pay for their own room on a monthly basis and they would also pay for all their bills to be included.  The tenants would not necessarily know each other and its a great opportunity for people new to an area to meet other like minded people and/or to have a cheaper rent whilst they relocate and find their feet in a new area.  These types of properties are extremely popular with students, recent graduates and people relocating to a new area.

Landlords love HMO’s and I have several investors who will only buy properties which can be converted into HMO’s, but there are a couple of issues finding the perfect property to turn into a HMO in Stockport as Stockport (well the area’s that I cover from the Julian Wadden Stockport Exchange Branch) are generally two bedroom terraces, so to find a property that can be converted is quite specific as the cellar needs to have a good head height, or you need to be able to convert the attic into a bedroom easily as its all about yield!  With a HMO you need to be able to have 4 plus bedrooms in order to make the figures stack up, but then to also be able to have the required number of bathrooms and living rooms to ensure the property falls in line with the HMO regulations is not an easy task.  You also need to provide all the furniture and be prepared to pay for damage to communal areas, as its pretty impossible to lay blame to one tenant and therefore request monies from their deposit.

Today however, I have done the impossible and found the perfect HMO!  Go me!  I have found a property that is on the market at a fair price, which would be able to provide you as an investor looking for the perfect HMO with enough bedrooms to have a very good yield and would meet the HMO regulations with a little bit of a reshuffle!  And… here it is… a 5 bedroom semi-detached house for sale on Glenmoor Road, Offerton and on the market for a very reasonable £260,000.  I say reasonable, I know we don’t all have this amount of money sat in our bank accounts but the price is reasonable for what you could do with the property.  I believe that you would be able to get 7 or 8 bedrooms in this property – 2 bathrooms and then you would need a communal living area which would be a lovely lounge/conservatory area at the rear of the property.  In order to do this and to modernise the property I think you would need to spend about £20,000 but then the rooms would rent out at £400 to £450pcm (before bills) which would give you a monthly income of £3,400 per month.  This means the yield would be 14.6% which is absolutely fantastic!

I know my HMO investors will now be quite excited, so let me tell you a little more.  The property is on the market with Bridgfords in Hazel Grove and although its not very modern, its certainly very well presented and in good condition.  It has a large, beautiful lawned garden and a driveway for at least a couple of cars.  If you were to take a little of the garden away, you would be able to provide off street parking for multiple tenants meaning the neighbours would be happy too!

For more information about this property or HMO’s in general or even if you are looking for a rental property in the area, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0161 474 8668 or email me at stockportlettings@julianwadden.co.uk.

Happy investing!

a lovely three bedroom semi-detached house with a 6.4% yield in rostherne road, sk3

Hello Readers,

I hope you are all well and enjoying these lovely Autumnal days!

I am quite sure that a lot of you are getting towards this final quarter of the year and thinking, did I achieve all I wanted to achieve in 2018?  Did I purchase that investment property and put my money into property as I vowed to do, to maximise on my income and future earnings?  If the answer is no, then I have a fantastic investment opportunity for you!

This property is in Rosetherne Road, SK3 and it is on the market at offers over £150,000.  It has three good sized double bedrooms and has been recently refurbished throughout to a high standard.  The walls have been white washed throughout and the kitchen and bathroom are modern and appealing – to buyers and tenants alike.

If you were to purchase this property you would have no works to do, as its ready to rent out straight away and if purchased for £150,000 then you would be looking at a yield of 6.4% as I believe that you would be able to achieve at least £800pcm.  The property is situated in a lovely part of Stockport, in a nice residential area, with good schools and lots of local amenities on the doorstep.

So, if you are looking for one more property before the end of the year to complete your portfolio, or you need to fulfill your New Year vows to invest in property then look no further.

For other investment opportunities or information on buy-to-lets then please give me a call on 0161 474 8668.

Residential conversion planned for Stockports Wellesley House

It has been reported in Place, North West that Wellesley House is set to be converted in to residential accommodation.

Wellesley House, a prominent 46,000 sq ft office block in Stockport town centre, could be converted into 77 apartments under plans put forward by developer Mandale Homes.

The seven-storey office block fronts the A6 and sits around 500m from the Merseyway shopping centre, and is also near Junction 1 of the M60.

Former tenants include a Job Centre on the ground floor, and the Department for Work & Pensions, but the building is now largely empty. Space on the seventh floor was previously marketed by consultancy Hallams.

Mandale Homes is proposing to convert the building into a mix of 51 one-bed flats and 26 two-beds. Existing access from both Laurel Street and the A6 will be retained, as will the building’s existing 83 car parking spaces, and cycle parking will be added. The professional team includes TPS as transport consultant. The developer, Mandale, is based in Stockton-on-Tees.

Office-to-residential projects have become increasing prevalent in Greater Manchester in the last 12 months, particularly around Old Trafford where a number of lower-grade office buildings are being converted into apartments or student accommodation.

i love this investment opportunity and i hope you do too…

Hello Readers!

I have been seeing what has come on the market since I last wrote a blog and I have found this property on Beech Road and I love it!  Not only is this a lovely road in Stockport, close to Davenport (which is a particularly nice residential area in Stockport) but it has three bedrooms – two of which are good sized doubles and the third which looks like a good size – perfect for a nursery.  Another reason I love this property is the price!  I am one for a bargain (for those who know me) and property is no exception.  I think that this house is very well priced based on the fact that in Edgeley, just a stone’s throw away from this property, its tricky to find a 2 bed for under £130,000 so a three bedroom semi-detached house which (other than a lick of paint throughout to neutralise the colour palate) looks as though its ready to let, is a steal from my point of view.

I believe that once the works were complete i.e. paintworks, that this property should rent for £850pcm which means a yield of 6.8% which is fantastic.  Investors, call me to find out more about other local investment opportunities on 0161 474 8668 or give Harvey Scott in Davenport a call to get a viewing booked in on this one!  I am more than happy to attend with you to give you an insight into the Lettings world if you would like.

Happy property hunting!

A wonderful opportunity to purchase a buy-to-let property with a 7% yield…

Hello Readers,

I have been scouring the market and found this property for you today.  It is in a very central location and it is actually just around the corner from our office on the A6, so its a very good location and one that I can vouch for!

The property is in a recently redeveloped building called ‘Archer House’ which was originally the Inland Revenue building for Stockport.  The building was offices which were converted in January to April 2017 and completed at the start of May 2017.  The apartments are beautiful and modern, with built in appliances such as washing machine and large fridge freezer.  The floors are a laminate grey colour and the walls are white, which gives the apartments a modern feel and in my experience renting properties in this development, they rent very well!  All of the properties come with an allocated parking space, which is highly sought after in the town centre.

The apartment in question for my blog today is actually a studio apartment on the top floor of the development and the views are really quite something!  You can see out over the Pennines and honestly its a lovely view!  This apartment is on the market for £85,000 and even unfurnished (as it currently is) I believe it should rent for £495pcm which would give you a lovely yield of 7%.  The good thing is about this that on completion it would take approx. 1 month to market and have a tenant moved in, as apartments in the town centre of this calibre, with parking are so sought after.

So, what are you waiting for?  Give Urban Bubble a call and get a viewing booked (link to the property on rightmove below) and then call me on 0161 474 8668 and I will meet you there and tell you all you need to know about Lettings in Stockport.

I shall look forward to working with you!

Gemma Lowe, Lettings Manager
